All's for the Best

There's something wrong with the guest toilet
off my dining room. I have to jiggle the handle
gently or it just keeps running.

Last week a guest couldn't stop talking about
how Bush was the greatest president of the
century. When I pointed out he was the only
president of the century, she excused herself.

When she returned, she couldn't stop talking
about how to fix toilets. When she paused,
I was able to keep her on topic with gentle
jiggling until it was time for her to go.

Conclusion: All's for the best, in the best of
all possible worlds.
